CIRCLE 



ABBOT ACADEMY, ANDOVER, MASSACHUSETTS 



DEDICATED 

to 

MISS ANNA ELIZABETH ROTH 

Miss Roth will be remembered by the Class 
of 1950 for her constant and vital influence 
on our work; for her thought-provoking 
history classes; for her seldom seen, but 
rewarding smile; and finally, for the 
start which she gave us as Seniors toward 
finer college work. Through all these things 
she has won our greatest admiration and 
it is to her that we express our appreciation 
by dedicating to her this, our record album 
of Abbot memories. 




Every record needs backing, and 
this our sponsors, the faculty, pro- 
vided. To them, our thanks. We hope 
that this record album sings to them, 
as to us, the music of the year. 




MISS HEARSEY 

Miss Hearsey's advice and encourage- 
ment is ever present — her prayers in 
chapel, full of deep truth; private con- 
ferences, in which we comprehend so 
little of all she must consider; her friendli- 
ness and smiling cheerfulness; the homey 
coziness of Sunset. Many of our memories 
are linked with thoughts of Miss Hearsey 
— her sportsmanship, vitality, warmth, 
and wisdom. 




MISS SWEENEY 



So often when burdened with anxiety 
and problems, we are guided by Miss 
Sweeney's sage hand. Never too busy to 
listen, to understand, and to aid, she 
seems to leave with us a greater sense of 
self-confidence and assurance. Her sin- 
cerity, foresight, and guidance will always 
be remembered.

Class Song 

Our yellow banner waving, 

Our voices raised in song, 

For the class of 1950 

Our praises echo long! 

Our loyalty and spirit 

Soon but a memory, 

But we give our best to Abbot, 

And the class of the half century.

We Seniors 



Returning — 

with summer tans; readjusting to rules and bells and brain fatigue; a bit 
confused, but anxious to prove our worth as Seniors. 

Ouk Picnic — 

with hot dogs and sand; a bright blue world and a pounding surf; really being 
a class as a whole. 

Sudden Realization — 

with our first Sunday coffee; "Senior meeting after lunch. . . "; poetry class 
and Senior play try outs. 

Our Parlor — 

always bulging; radio blaring; sagging sofa and bulletin-board reminders; a 
room of our own — what would we do without it! 

Senior Lights — 

when we fought the Revolution, wrote the Constitution, and issued Green- 
backs; "To be or not to be". . .je rous en prie . . . Ca(C10) 2 . . .le gusta mucho; 
bitten nails and blue-circled eyes. 

Those Saturday Leaves — 

with the first inhale; hasty and hysterical lunches; windblown hair; Bonwit's 
and the subway; tearing for the 5:14: weary bones, exciting packages, smiling 
faces. 

Big Days — 

we squealingly got our photo proofs; the Ring Ceremony when the gold bands 
with 1950 slipped on our fingers; backstage bustling and the Senior Play; 
Intervale: Paradise regained! Prom plans — then suddenly the male invasion, 
yellow roses, good-byes; "How many graduation invitations will I need?"; 
hibernating to Baronial and fireside chats; gown-fittings; College Boards and 
wobbly knees; the Bazaar; replies from colleges; then all at once our last picnic, 
the Garden Party, Draper Dram, the final concert. 

Unforgettable — 

morning chapel that means so much; shadows across the snow on the circle; 
cheeseburgers at Ford's; that last-minute curl before calling hour; dinners at 
Sunset; bird walks in the great outdoors; Source themes and living in the 
library; minute bank accounts; Sunday Vespers; the Maple Walk in Spring- 
time. . . 

Graduation — 

with eyes bright but brimming; blue gowns and pink roses; an endless march 
up the aisle; diplomas and congratulations; tearful farewells, bulging suitcases, 
mingled joy and sorrow, and many memories.

How to Make a Senior Pie 

This won't be difficult for us Seniors- 
to-be, to make the perfect Senior pie. 
We have all the ingredients! Looking 
over the list of the Senior-Mids, we 
notice that every one of us will add 
good flavor to this happy combination. 
First we'll need a crust as the founda- 
tion; the class officers should furnish 
this. We'll add to the filling some girls 
like Huffy or Frances for their intelli- 
gence; spiced with a little Mary Macy; 
with foreign ingredients such as Minola 
or Flor; Harmony will be Sheila or 
Slick; beauty such as Connie or Cora 
Alice; artistic touches by Jo Anne and 
Polly; and top it off with fluff like 
Marcia and Happy. This pie will be all 
that it should be, in unity, sweetness, 
and goodness, mixed with flavor and 
life. It's a pie that we're all proud to be 
a part of, and one that when tasted 
will be a savory dish.

Student Government at Abbot is not 
abstract and withdrawn from the stu- 
dent body. On the contrary, from the 
time a girl enters Abbot until her 
graduation Stu-G plays an important 
part in her life. It may be that her 
contact with it is only in an official 
capacity, and she may be conscious of 
the officers as the girls who remind her 
of the rules that must be obeyed. 
However, the sense of fair play, sports- 
manship and honor achieved under 
Student Government has an indescrib- 
able effect on the future life of every 
Abbot girl. The work of the 1949-1950 
council included alteration of the 
citation system, and sponsorship of 
correspondences between Abbot and 
young people of other countries. On 
November 5-6, 1949, representatives of 
the New England Student Government 
Association met in Andover. The work 
of the council regulates and sets a high 
standard for Abbot students.

A. C. A. 



Together with the efforts of the 
World Student Service Fund, A.C.A. 
has contributed to many charities to 
aid in the fight against suffering. 

A.C.A. began the year with a lively 
Old Girl-New Girl party, with games, 
stunts, refreshments and new friends 
for everyone. During the fall many of 
us experienced "second-childhood" 
while dressing dolls and choosing toys 
to send to the Hindman Settlement. 
Saint Nick stopped here at the party 
A.C.A. gave for Andover children, with 
presents for each little boy and girl. 
The Preps and Juniors gave The Birds' 
Christmas Carol, and to the tune of 
"Jingle Bells" the party came to a 
happy end. A basket of fruit was 
presented to the Andover Old Folks' 
Home for their Christmas. The candle- 
light Vesper Service, with the reading 
of two stories, was a delightful part of

ducted the Wednesday morning chapel.

Choir 

The Abbot Chapel Choir, a group of 
about sixteen voices, for the most part 
Seniors, sings each Sunday at vespers. 
Under the direction of Miss Kate Friskin, 



we aspire to master the difficult passages 
in many of the classical four-part an- 
thems. It is work, and fun, and we love it. 

Fidelio 

Early in the fall, the lucky chosen fifty 
hurry to the first meeting of Fidelio. 
The program would include a concert at 
Abbot with the Exeter boys as our sing- 
ing guests, and then another at Governor 
Dummer where we would be the visitors. 
Both events meant dinner parties before 
and dancing after the programs. AVe 
would also sing a vesper service in the 
Phillips Academy chapel with the choir. 

Under the baton of our gifted director, 
Miss Kate Friskin, we worked out of the 
flats into some too sharps until we finally 
became natural, or so we hoped, especially 
on the big occasion. 

Fidelio enriches our years at Abbot, for 
as underclassmen we listen to the beauti- 
ful choral concerts, and as upperclassmen 
we take pride in either achieving mem- 
bership, or else seeing our classmates 
participate in the traditional success of 
this time-honored organization.

Dramatics 



Tryouts; Miss Hale's scribbled notices; 
rehearsals; playbooks dog-eared from 
study; rehearsals; butterflies; curtain 
time. Yes, "The play's the thing." 

December brought the seniors' presen- 
tation of Fanny and the Servant Problem. 
Never shall we forget the dashing picture 
of Fanny and her lover, or the Bennett 
family's rendition of "Soldiers of Christ 
Arise" as it echoed and re-echoed through 
Bantock Hall. From the enthusiastic 
cheers of the underclassmen, the seniors 
knew their comedy had been a success. 

The Abbot Dramatic Society includes 
some of the more talented actresses of the 
school. The membership, on a competitive 
basis, was increased from ten to sixteen 
this year, so that more girls might share 
its opportunities. Another new feature 
was the holding of monthly meetings, the 
purpose of which was to give the members 
a wider knowledge of the theatre. The 
climax of the year's work came in April 
when A.D.S. put on Dear Brutus, the 




NORA AND PEGGY 

"Lady and Lord Bantock" 



well-beloved play of James Barrie. With 
Sonny's battle cry, "Let's clear the 
stage," school girls adopted varied and 
complex characters. 

After these two entertaining plays, 
Abbot turned her eyes towards Draper 
Dramatics, the play which would high- 
light the graduation activities.

Courant 



We don't see our names in lights, 
but we do see them in print! Of 
course, not only our names appear 
in print, but our literary aspira- 
tions as well, and these, in their 
final presentation, make up Cour- 
ant. Courant is the school maga- 
zine, open to all for contributions, 
but assembled and organized by 
the board which consists of ten 
members of the two upper classes. 
Mandy's "Courant, 4:45!" an- 
nounces our weekly meetings where 
new material is read, criticized 
and, if it passes the "thumbs-up" 
test, it is on its way. Twice a year 
our meetings are tinged with an 
especially animated atmosphere as 
they include frantic typing of 
material, chiseling block-cuts, pro- 
ducing an artistic frontispiece, and 
never-ending proofreading, all 
done for the goal— "ready for 
press." When Courant actually is 
ready for press, we hand it over to 
the printer, and after passing judg- 
ment on the galley and page proof, 
Courant again appears — Now a 
bound, complete magazine!

The "A" Society is composed of 
the girls who have gained 500 per- 
sonal athletic points. Points may 
be gotten in a number of ways; 
by making a varsity team (oh! 
those athletes!), taking those well- 
loved "bird-walks" (Salem Street, 
here we come), by standing up 
straight, whenever Miss Judd or 




TEAM CAPTAINS

Miss Elroy wander in, by pass- 
ing those wicked tests each season ; 
and last but not least, bv the ath- 
letic citation. One can also win 
class numerals which are proudly 
worn on blazers by gaining 300 
points; and the most sought-after 
award comes after 750 points, the 
Abbot blazer. This last award goes 
to the girls who have steadily 
participated in all the athletics and 




AAA 

"Janie" 

have shown outstanding work in 
athletics and, incidentally, who 
are worshipfully admired by those 
less athletic ones. But whether one 
gets a set of numerals or a blazer, 
every one is a loval member of the 
Athletic Association and together 
strive to uphold the standards 
created and carried on from vear 
to vear.

Year of Sports 

When you became a student of 
Abbot Academy vou became a 
member of her Athletic Associa- 
tion, and belonging to this society 
has meant a great deal to you. It 
was not so very long ago, and you'll 
never forget that day, for vour 
face was white as vou marched out 

* 

of the tower door to your expected 
doom. It was then that vou were 
initiated onto one of Abbot's teams 
— the Gargoyles or the Griffins. 
And when you received the orange 
or the green, there was a look of 
pride in your eyes! You knew the 
good times ahead! You were really 
a part of Abbot then, and your 
sportsmanship and spirits soared 
high. Lister and Gus looked at you 
all and whispered to each other, 
"Never have the teams been so 
finer' And so your life here began, 
with you very much a part of 
Abbot and Abbot a part of you. 
All through the fall months you 
were out there plugging away — 
Whew! You were exhausted from

playing that hockey game! Or 
maybe there was a "basketball 
finger" to remind you of the rip- 
roaring competition the other team 
offered. And pounds literally fell 
off on the tennis court as vou 
struggled to win your tournament. 
Then, when the big day arrived 
and the orange and green became 
reallv friendlv enemies, vou all

winter began. Some of you slipped 
into slinky leotards and flitted off 
to modern dance while others be- 
gan to climb the walls and twist 
themselves up in knots — you 
guessed it — gymnastics. Hail Miss 
Judd and Miss Elroy for keeping 
their eardrums in shape. (We do 
apologize for sounding like ele- 
phants, but we did mean well.) 

When that first snow arrived you 
donned your glamorous ski clothes, 
put on the brand-new pair of skis 
and felt terribly professional. Bang! 
Crash! Better luck next time down. 
It takes a few to get in practice. 
But what fun vou had when you 
could reallv ski — vou know, make 
it down vertically and land at the 
bottom in the same position. 

Or mavbe ice-skating was vour 
special sport. Many a happy hour 
was spent skimming over the shiny 



[61] 





surfaces. Skimming did I sav? 
Yes! skimming. 

But when spring arrived you 
were more than happy to welcome 
it. For it was lacrosse season and 
that was something extra special. 
"How in the world can you cradle 
a ball?" you wondered, hut you 
caught onand before long the Green 
and the Orange were competing 
again. Track season brought out 
the Amazon in you! You leaped 
across the broad-jump pit or hurled 
the javelin with a mighty heave. 
Your Injun instincts came out 
when like Chief Fleet -as-an-Arrow 
you ran the dash, or participated 
in the relav. Tennis season arrived 
once more and vou were out there 
pounding the backboard as well as 
vour brain if determination was 
vour motto. And then, of course,

there was baseball. No slouching in 
that area. Swat — we were good! 

Many a spring walk gave you 
spring fever. And who could do 
home work after a canoe picnic on 
the lazy river? The year was draw- 
ing to an end. Spring Field Day 
brought more "Suntimes." 

"When the day of "last chapel" 
arrived amid a mass of guests and 
excitement, joy and sadness, you 
all sat in chapel and held your 
breath — you were all on edge, 
hoping, praying for your team. 
Then suddenlv it was announced — 

« 

a mighty shout echoed throughout 
the room and re-echoed over the 
campus! The year was officially 
over! It had been a great one for 
all and especially for A. A. A.! The 
shield is placed high — symbolic of 
the meaning it has for all of us.

Of all the records in our album 
only one is long-playing — the record 
of our year. All the gaiety and gloom, 
fun and failures, events and aspira- 
tions are recorded all too briefly, but 
a tune is created — the melody of 
1950! 




September 

September twenty-first, nineteen forty-nine. 

The new girls arrived, fit n fine! 

A stream of ears, milling crowds 

Around the Circle, heads in the clouds. 

Some blase and oh, so at ease. 

Others trying so hard to please: 

But all confused, bewildered and lost. 

Clothes, drapes, and books on beds are 

tossed; 
And Senior Council through the shambles 

appears 
As welcome committee to dry away tears. 
"Hev. Mabel!" '"How are vou?" 
"Hi, Joan!" "Short hair too?" 
The next day such wild greetings 
Old girls screeched at hysterical meetings. 
"Breathe deeply! Exhale!" the doctors were 

howling: 
At flat feet and sway-backs they all were 

scowling. 
"Physicals" over and such rigamarole 
Into the nut-house we were ready to go! 
With Miss Hearsey's "send-off" we all began 

classes, 
And thus we became the struggling masses. 
Friday brought homework and first P. A. 

callers: 
"He sure is a cutie, if he only were taller!" 
On Saturday to Ipswich under bright sunny 

skies : 
Hot-dogs and milk and sand in our eyes. 
That night the A.C.A. party with games 
That always involve learning more names ! 
The first week, teachers and girls got ac- 
quainted; 
And into routine the Abbot girls fainted. 
That week flew by on little winged feet; 
We knew what it meant to be thoroughly 

beat. 

October 

The Seniors on Saturday filled buses again. 
Bound for the beach where we never com- 
plain: 
With ciggies and sand and huge appetites 
W e stuffed and relaxed and laughed with de- 
light. 
October the eighth: the first football game, 
P. A. tea dance and underclass fame. 
Soon, the Shrew to be Tamed, Senior poems 
to write, 



Hamlet's soliloquy, and Senior lights! 
Halloween came and to celebrate 
A big U.N. Party — better early than late! 
A visit from witches and of course the Big 

Five, 
Ghosts and goblins kept the big throw alive. 

November 

With November came the Stu-G pow-wow 

Lectures and square dance and plenty of 
chow; 

Meeting new people and mutual friends 

But (let us face it !) it came to an end! 

Miss Hopkins' farewell and Senior photos 
taken : 

Hockey and bells and liver with bacon. 

The blue of P. A. 'gainst the red of P.E. 

Andover victors at Abbot made whoopee ! 

Field Day on Monday — the Gargoyles win. 

The Seniors on Wednesday their Chaucer 
begin. 

Saturday leaves, and si, si, ze Mexico talk. 

Miss Friskin's recital and many bird walks. 

What about marks? Don't be ridic. 

We got them and felt oh, so utterly sick! 

But Thanksgiving arrived with our chapel 
devotions 

On the evening before the holiday commo- 
tions. 

We hurried at dawn so not a minute to miss 

Of turkey and firesides and family bliss. 

At eight — back to Abbot — to the In- 
firmary run! 

We ate far too much, so we paid for our fun. 

When Christmas tables began on Friday 

St. Nick, we all knew was not far away. 

Then on with the stockings and "long under- 
wear"; 

We saw Old Man Winter with a cold blast 
was there. 

December 

The month of icicles arrived in full force 
December brings holly and mistletoe, of 



course 



Abbot's own "night club" was quite a hot 

spot, 
It was pretty good for what Abbot's got. 
Our Senior Play came the night of the tenth 
But Seniors had even more excitement : 
The parlor bulging with every last one 




P «■ 




(As if winning a race that we all had run). 
And after 'ring ceremony' and Miss Hear- 

sey's wise talk 
We with our class rings on pink clouds did 

walk. 
Before the curtain rose, marching up the 

aisle 
The Senior-Mids came singing "Onward!" 

with a big smile. 
With "servants" and "Fanny" and each one 

concerned 
The flame of success through Davis Hall 

burned. 
The A.C.A. gave their Yuletide service. 
The girls looked nice, but were oh, so nervous. 
Lee told a story, 'neath the candlelight glow, 
And outside, our Circle was spread with new 

snow. 
Our last week sped by, filled with anticipa- 
tion; 
Each day brought us closer to Christmas 

vacation ! 
Our last yummy dinner came to a song-filled 

ending 
And so to MeKeen rooms our way we were 

wending 
To sing Yuletide carols of the season's good 

cheer 
And wind up shouting "Happy New Year!" 
We awoke in the morn to the clear carol- 
singing 
Of choir girls, by candlelight, Christmas joy 

bringing. 
We hastened to leave still rubbing our eyes 
For dawn's-early trains at five we did rise. 
Bags and trunks clogging up the front hall 
We called "Adios" and "Greetings, you all!" 

January 

From merry Christmases and grand celebra- 
tion, 

We returned to school ready for another 
vacation ! 

Patty and Mile. Baratte with bad colds and 
fever 

Were late to return, as were Sonny and Eva. 

We quickly got back into the old swing 

Hearing the breakfast and lights-out bell 
ring! 

Sculptor Silvercruys talked, not turning this 
or that way 



And when she was through she had sculped 

Nancy Gray. 
Should it be Elmer, or Zeke, or my Louie? 
With prom partner problems we went ca- 

flooie! 
At Abbot, Exeter concert-ed and Exeter 

danced — 
Gee! It was great to see a pair of pants! 
By dim flashlights in closets we crammed 
Nervously studying for on-coming exams. 
Chaotic exam week — "What if I fail?" 
Then with a roar — Seniors to Intervale! 
"Cheerio, here I go," relaxation, sports and 

cigs, too! 
In North Conway tradition we heard "Winnie 

the Pooh". 

February 

From that "little bit of heaven" we returned 

in sad array 
Reading "True Love" or sleeping in sloppy 

display. 
Miss Hale and Miss Goodwin involved in 

psychiatry 
With their unusual maids gave a great show 

of riotry. 
To the great height of "Suicide" we avid 

skiiers climbed 
For the first spree of skiing for which we had 

pined. 
With hair-curlers, blue-jeans and creamed 

faces a mess 
The prom decorators made posters in frantic 

distress. 
But Saturday dawned a beautiful day ; 
Tea dancing, promenading — all so gay, 
That sad were the farewells of dates on Sun- 
day. 
A million Valentines frilly and pretty 
Arrived on the fourteenth — each with a 

ditty. 
"Get to the source of your poet's themes!" 
By the time papers were due, we said verse 

in our dreams. 
Baronial now open — the meals how delish! 
Food, fire, and vie — what more could you 

wish? 

March 

"Eet vas vunderful!" we screamed, "How 

rich!" 
With Lee, Eva, and Dottie in "Tovarich." 





More talent was shown — you'd think it was 

vital, 
The way that they squirmed at the student 

recital. 
We thought with Scholatic Apts. it was bad, 
But with College Boards we really went mad! 
The Juniors had their parties, while the 

March winds blew 
W egot spring-fever and longed to bethrough. 
A Y\ alk Through the Woods with wee Mr. 

Boyd 
Of the birds and their habits one night we 

hoid. 
"We have here a fine dilemma," cried in 

terrible fury 
The vigorous chorus of "Trial by Jury." 
Sunday church at P. A. and spring was in 

bloom, 
But next day snow again, and Monday gloom. 
No history homework? Don't be silly! 
Cartoons for the weekend — "Mine was a 

dilly!" 
Wid de Preacher Russell, and the Boogie 

Baby on the down beat 
Miss Bockstedt and chorus gave us a Satur- 
day night treat. 
Now! Swing from that bar! Hang from your 

feet! 
Rock your horse higher at the Gym Meet. 
Next morn at dawn there is no delay 
To rise and shine for vacation — away ! 

April 

On vacation, friend March went out like a 

lamb. 
On April eleventh we returned to exams 
And bells and books — and of course, a good 

rest 
(With blue-circled eyes we were not at our 

best!). 
Wednesday, sleepily, we started our classes 
In hand were not cocktail, but horn-rimmed 

glasses! 
With tennis, lacrosse, riding, and baseball. 
Feeling "younger than springtime' to sports 

we would crawl. 
The artists. Friskin, Arosa, and Coon 
Entertained us 'neath a Saturday moon. 
Our Easter finery a mere week old 
We paraded to church in mode a la bold. 
The days become longer and then we all 

knew 



Just a mere seven weeks until we were 

through! 
"Dear Brutus" the product of A.D.S. players 
With scenery, costumes, make-up in layers: 
Every last detail what a beautiful 

job, 
And we sure got acquainted with the friends 

of Lob. 
Sunday the French horn, piano and violin 
Caused a hush o'er the crowd such as there's 

seldom been. 
Now let us speak of the true Abbot scholar 
Cum Laude, no less, was the next thing to 

follow. 
Mincing on tippey-toes came the swift 

dancers. 
Next Saturday night we saw pirouettes and 

prancers ! 

May and — 

We can't include May, the month so merry 
Because our good printer is in a big hurry 
To call in our dummy and put it to bed, 
But we'll jot down a list of what is ahead . . . 
"Come and buv, one and all!" Mav sixth, the 

Bazaar; 
Our one hundred and twenty-first birth- 
day — we go back that far! 
The circle resembling a huge birthday cake: 
Crepe paper, booths, and put in to bake! 
X earing the end : Mikado and Speech speech- 
es; 
Sunshine and packing; whipped cream and 

peaches. 
Griffins and Gargoyles at the last Field Day 

battles. 
Fighting and scoring 'til every bone rattles! 

Exams, yes, exams it's all over now 

And at the "last chapel" our winners take a 

bow. 
Parents arrive and cars are soon full . . . 
We shove, stuff, and cram; push and pull! 
Commencement week-end is a wonderful 

thrill, 
Some joy and some sadness each Senior's 

heart fills. 
We bid our farewells to such familar sights 
As Maple Walk, books, and of course Senior 

lights. 
Our foolishness and failures, joys and sor- 
rows 
Will be but memories in the approaching 

tomorrow. 
But pitying ever Columbus and Cabot 
We leave shouting lustilv, "Long life to 
Abbot!"

PACQUINS Hand Cream 




* * *k * Stars of stage, screen, and opera use it . . . and more 
women buy Pacquins for the "hands men admire" than any 
other hand cream in the world! 

"You get best results when you cream your face," say these famous beauties; 
"then doesn't it follow you should cream your hands?" 

And all over the world, women agree. 

But . . . try Pacquins and see for yourself! Try a 12-second massage with 
snowy-white, quick-vanishing Pacquins tonight . . . and tomorrow morning. 
See if it doesn't smooth your hands into a creamy loveliness you have never 
matched with any other method. 

Never sticky or greasy, Pacquins beautifies hard-working hands . . . drama- 
tizes beautiful hands. 

Cherish your hands with Pacquins and he'll cherish your heart!
